Delicious & Historic Strawberry Festival is Returning for 2023

Dianna Carney

(HANSON, MA) Strawberries have a long history in Massachusetts. Native Americans have been consuming wild strawberries for centuries, and these berries were an important part of their diet. The first cultivated strawberries in Massachusetts were grown in the early 1800s, and by the late 1800s, Massachusetts had become a major strawberry-producing state. Today, strawberries are still an important crop in Massachusetts, with many farms offering pick-your-own strawberry fields during the summer months.

Now, you have the chance to celebrate this sweet summer fruit while having a great time! The Hanson Historical Society has announced the return of its famous and long-running Strawberry Festival, and it's right around the corner!

Founded in 1961, the Hanson Historical Society is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and studying the history of the town of Hanson, located in Plymouth County, Massachusetts. The society also hosts events for the community throughout the year, encouraging locals to not just celebrate history but to create it by coming together and enjoying a day of festivities!

Admission to this family-friendly evening of tasty fun is $8 and will include a homemade fresh strawberry shortcake topped with ice cream. If this sounds like fun, be sure to mark your calendar for the annual Strawberry Festival, which is happening on Friday, June 16th!
